Hi everyone, when thinking about my favourite technique for the StampingPals challenge this month, I confess I was torn between the Joseph’s Coat Technique and the Tailored Tag technique. In the end, the Joseph’s Coat Technique won, but I still couldn’t resist making another card using the Tailored Tag punch. I love these cards! I usually veer towards making more feminine cards but this time I decided to go for a masculine look. I used the Well Suited Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Handsomely Suited bundle (Handsomely Suited stamp set and Suit & Tie dies).
This is such an easy technique and if you’ve never seen it before, you are going to love it! All you need to do is punch out a heap of shapes and then adhere them to a panel of cardstock. I always start with a panel of cardstock which is the same size as my card front. I can then easily trim the edges and cut the panel to my preferred size. This panel was then attached to a Basic Grey cardstock base.
Moving on to the sentiment, my original idea had been to add a block and have a bow tie placed half on it and half off. I discarded that idea for this card as I thought it might have faded into the background. Instead, I stamped the sentiment (from the Handsomely Suited stamp set) and die cut the panel (using the Stitched Shapes dies) so that the bow tie could sit nicely above it.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
